How To Create a Profile in The Giving Partner

Is your nonprofit interested in creating a profile in The Giving Partner? Having a profile is a great way to increase awareness of your organization in our local community. Plus, maintaining a current profile qualifies your organization to apply for grants from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and to participate in the Giving Challenge!

Please know that in order to create a profile, your organization must have both of the following:

  1. IRS 501(c)(3) Letter of Determination, and
  2. At least one current program with local impact in at least one of the following counties: Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte or DeSoto

If you meet the above requirements, we invite you to join us!
